I've been thinking about this a lot recently (yes it's half past midnight, yes I need to get out more) and I can't decide whether it is the musicians or the composer that makes a piece worth listening to. Obviously a combination of both helps, but would you rather listen to a fantastically played but mediocre piece or the other way round? I would say it is the composer slightly more than the performers as there are some pieces that no matter how badly they are played (well obviously they have to be recognisable), are just that little bit special. But others you could give to dyke and still not manage to evoke any meaning or purpose. Just my thoughts. Any comments?
